Plans In Place If 7s Bid Is Successful: Attorney-General
Plans are in place to support Fiji's bid to host a leg of the sevens series here.

Fiji may look at the model which Dubai uses if Fiji Rugby Un­ion’s bid for a Fiji 7s goes through.

Dubai sets up temporary structures where the games are held.

Speaking in Parliament yesterday, Mr Sayed-Khai­yum said an initial esti­mation of $10million was quoted for works to host the sevens leg here.

This however, he clarified was only a rough estima­tion.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said World Rugby required an in­dependent institution such as the Fiji Rugby Union to be the front for the bid. While Government will assist, it was still for the Fiji Rugby Union to carry it forward.

He was also questioned about contracts of sevens rugby players. He clarified that it was a matter for the Fiji Rugby Union.
